Here is a fun video advertising the NBA playoffs. It is one of the best sports videos of the season. When watching it, the reason is obvious… chess and basketball! There are countless analogies made between chess and various sports, but this video is perhaps the first time that chess has been the focus of an NBA ad. There are several NBA players who play the game. Perhaps Bill Robinzine of the old Kansas City Kings had the best reputation.
The NBA stars in the video make some interesting expressions and must have received some coaching from chess players. They even handled the clock fairly well.
